Abstract:

Successful high energy rate forging of unwrought refractory materials is highly dependent upon the forging configuration and die design. Good forgings are possible when working stresses are compressive in nature. Tensile and shear stresses during forging generally result in fracturing of the billet if the refractory metals have received little or no plastic work. Data for forging conditions and results of metallurgical examinations are presented.
